A brief question re Bandera. I recall that at the time of the 2nd Russian period - in 1944-5 we were continuously warned about the "banderovtsi" in the woods around Czernowitz (when our mothers were mobilised to go there and cut trees for wood in the stoves). As a young boy I understood this to mean simply bandits. I wonder whether this was correct, or the authorities actually meant members of the Bandera "partisans" as they called themselves? Does anybody have the correct answer?
